I inherited these from my grandmother when she passed away. Last year they looked great. This year the are turning yellow and brown. They are still blooming. I thought they were too wet so I repotted them. From the research I have done I think they are daylilies, although I am not sure what type. I think the are beautiful and I really don't want them to die. Any help would be appreciated.

They are not a daylily, they are some kind of iris. Here is the iris forum you can ask there.

I think these are Neomarica which are commonly called 'Walking Iris', 'Apostle Plant', and 'Apostle's Iris'. But those common names are also used for a closely related Iridaceae (the iris family) called Trimezia. I think if you Google images for Neomarica or the common names used you will be able to identify your plant and go from there. I've never actually grown it myself, so am in no position to give advice Smiling .

Spot on ID. Iris neoamerica performs best in filtered light, light shade, with humous rich soil and even moisture. They thrive in the woodland garden and detest pot culture.
